Police Corporal sacked for refusing to report at new station after 9 years

A police Corporal identified as Buba Adamu has been dismissed over his refusal to report at his new station in Kaduna where he was transferred to from Cross River Command for nine years

Corporal Adamu not only refused to report in Kaduna, he also promoted himself to the rank of Superintendent and operated illegal activities in Cross River command.

The spokesperson of the Cross River Command, SP Irene Ugbo, made this disclosure at a press briefing in Calabar on Thursday.

She said that Adamu had operated as a “mobile police officer” without any supervision or reporting to a specific police command since 2015 when the transfer was made.

The dismissed corporal was alleged to have been receiving his salary in spite of not reporting at his new station.

Adamu lid was blown open by some concerned members of the Nassarawa community, a Hausa/Fulani settlement in Calabar municipality that had reportedly suffered from his illegal activities.

The community raised the alarm when they learnt that the Police command was under pressure to release Adamu following his arrest.

Ugbo said, “As of today, Corporal Adamu is no longer a policeman, because he has been relieved of his duties.

“Every item, property belonging to the Nigeria Police in his possession, including uniforms, identification card and others have been retrieved.

“The matter has now been charged to court. It is left for the Judiciary. The court will take it up from where we stopped , as we have done the needful.”
